20 years after he retired from music to spend time with his family, The Hollies lead singer Allan Clarke has returned with a new solo album Resurgence, due out on September 20 via BMG.
Hear the first song from it, “Journey Of Regret”, below:
“For many years, people have asked ‘Why don’t you go back to singing?’,” says Clarke. “What I couldn’t do was perform Hollies songs any more. But what I should have said was that there may be a time when I’ll be able to sing, because I’ll be doing songs that maybe I’ll write myself. It was always on the back burner.
“But then I said to my son Toby, who’s been involved musically in the family since the year he was born, ‘I’ve got a song I’ve done on guitar, but I don’t know what to do with it, what do you suggest?’ He said ‘You should learn to use GarageBand,’ and showed me how… It’s given me a new lease of life in doing something I thought I’d never do again.”
